Pros

The benefits and opportunities are great. There is a lot of opportunity for vertical and horizontal movement, so even if you find yourself stuck in a position you don't enjoy, there is ample choices in other departments.

Cons

My supervisor was not very flexible in regards to changing my schedule, so I usually got stuck working during holidays such as Christmas, New Years and other special dates specific to the country where I worked. I know "someone" has to do it, but I wished at the time that a rotation plan was in place, to make it a bit more fair. But again, that was my experience, with my supervisor. Cannot speak for all teams out there.

Advice to Management

Perhaps offering some snacks or even supplying free coffee / tea would be somewhat nice and generous to the guys on the floor, working on the phones all day long? Somedays they'd run our of water! :)

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere, good emphasis on team effort. Good focus on quality Good focus on guests Recognition of, and stimulating personal input - empowerment

    Cons

    Rather low pay Slow career growth options entry positions for graduates are rather low, compared to non hospitality companies

    Advice to Management

    It would be smart to offer better entry positions for graduates. The training program has its benefits, but it also scares the best graduates, as they feel they are treated as equals, eventhough they are far more talented than the rest.
